Equiom sponsors sixth form debate on social media

Equiom is pleased to sponsor this year’s sixth form debate hosted by Jersey College for Girls and Highlands College on the topic of ‘Does social media play a positive role in the lives of young people?’ The debate will take place on 24 October 2019 at the Royal Yacht Hotel from 6.00 to 8.00 pm.

‘I am delighted our students remain involved in this debate series initiated by JCG.’ said Carl Howarth, Principal of Jersey College for Girls. ‘The ability to express one’s opinions and ideas with confidence and clarity, to question and form arguments that are well researched, are essential skills for a forward looking society.  I am thankful for Equiom’s continued and generous support.’

Equiom Jersey’s Managing Director, Steve Le Seelleur said ‘Equiom is a strong supporter of preparing young people on their path to choosing a career. Participating in a debate is an important part of developing presentation and deductive reasoning skills, both of which are essential for a wide range of careers. I am looking forward to watching what is likely to be an engaging event.’

Jo Terry-Marchant, Principal of Highlands College added: ‘The benefits and drawbacks of social media continue to exercise the minds of researchers, governments, young people and their families. It will be interesting to see students from both JCG and Highlands College debate on this thought-provoking topic. We invite all families to join us for what is sure to be a stimulating event. Thank you to Equiom for its support in sponsoring this event, we are very much looking forward to it.’
